1. Hello, I am stuck on the following question and would appreciate some help

In a village, each farmer cultivates one type of product. 50% of the farmers cultivate wheat, 40% of the farmers cultivate barley and 10% of the farmers cultivate sunflowers. In the same village, 70% of the farmers own tractors, while 30% of the farmers do not own a tractor.

Moreover, 30% of the farmers both cultivate wheat and own a tractor. 5% of the farmers cultivate sunflowers and don’t own a tractor.

Using the information above find:

The probability that a farmer cultivates barley and owns a tractor.
